Notre Dame signs 10 year uniform deal with Under Armour


Notre Dame has signed a ten year deal with Under Armor for new uniforms and athletic gear.

Athletic Director Jack Swarbrick said in a news conference Tuesday that Under Armour will help keep Notre Dame's identity unique.  The hope for the university is to make Notre Dame "an athletic laboratory" that will experiment with cutting edge sports gear.

Kevin Plank with Under Armour shares that goal, saying that the partnership with Notre Dame allows them to bring more science to athletics.

This isn't the only new deal for Under Armour.  They have also signed deals with Northwestern and the Naval Academy.  Plank joked about the Notre Dame and Navy deals saying, "We've signed with God and country."

FOX28's Faran Fronczak will have more on the athletic gear deal here on and tonight on FOX28 News at 10.
